Understanding and Evaluating Engine Performance and Efficiency with Powertrain Control Modules



In order to save time and millions of dollars, a U.S. manufacturer wanted to test the engine before installing it in the vehicle. Thus, the U.S. automotive manufacturer turned to the experts at LHP Technology Solutions (LHPTS) for help with this challenge. To adequately test the engine, they needed a test system that could start the engine, run the engine at a few different RPM levels, control the actuators and sensors simultaneously, and then read the sensors. Ultimately, they wanted to ensure everything was working properly before the engine was installed in the vehicle.
